Repair Days 2016

by - September 24, 2016

The Metal Museum is pleased to announce Repair Days 2016, an annual fundraiser hosted by the Metal Museum where nearly 200 metalsmiths from across the country come to Memphis to make repairs on metal objects brought in by the community.

Join us for Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 24 from 10am to 4pm and watch as a blacksmith forges a bottle opener. Experience over 1,500 pounds of molten iron take shape as it is poured into molds. Try your hand at jewelry making. The Family Fun Tent allows metalsmiths of all skill levels and ages to develop their own metalworking skills.

There are many ways you can participate in Repair Days 2016. Consider becoming a "Friends of Repair Days," supporting Repair Days through a Corporate Sponsorship, donate artwork to the Repair Days Auction, buy tickets to our Dinner & Auction or simply bring us something to repair!
